H-Piles are designed for deep foundation applications. These piles are designed to transfer structural loads away from surface soils, which do not have the mechanical properites to support large buildings, to deeper bearing strata soils.
The H-pile shape is the most effective to transfer load bearing through the pile to the tip. H-piles are most commonly used in dense soils or rock where no piling system is better for offering pile resistance at the tip for point bearing capacity.
H-Piles are also used in conjunction with sheet piles to add lateral stiffness and bending resistance where loads exceed the capacity of sheet piles alone.
The design teams at Foundation Constructors can determine soil mechanics for H-pile use and spot any application issues before they happen. Our management team is at the top of their game to produce greater efficiency and deliver higher value to our clients.
